, especially in key battlegrounds. >> let me bring you in. we talked about a bump after hurricane sandy, the image of president obama with governor christie. according to our first read team, they say if there's a bump it's a bump in obama's direction. the caveat for team obama, al gore in 2000 and gerald ford in '76 had the momentum and ended up losing. both were representing incumbent party. what do you make if any of any comparisons there? >> i think what people liked to see last week in the midst of hurricane sandy was the most port zan of republicans, the man who delivered the keynote address at the convention working with the incumbent president, who is the democratic standard bearer. that's what people most want. when i had the opportunity to sit down the president recently, the first question i asked was about polarization. what are you prepared to do to get things done and to compromise, regardless of where the blame lies, for that which has taken place up until now? that's why i think it struck a chord. >> let's talk about the things we're seeing and getting a lot of people on
that cooperation after sandy. you love that? we have all the cooperation from the community college, you like that? that's the way you create jobs. you look all over america. the places that are doing well have government and business and foundations and universities and colleges working together. what is obama's plan? invest into new technologies that we know are going to grow and information technology and biotechnology, in clean energy, in modern manufacturing, in modern agriculture. and train and educate people to do that. he has invested in preschool, in the race to the top, and the finest student reform in my lifetime. now, next year, if the president is reelected, here's what's going to happen for everybody. you can say "win" when you make it happen. because i want you to know what's at stake here. the good news is we still ranked near the top in the world in the percentage of our young people going on to college. the bad news in the last decade is we dropped to 15th in the percentage of our young adults with four-year degrees. and we all know why, don't we? the costs went up. the aid didn'

that was hard hit by hurricane sandy and there were all sorts of questions, gwen, about whether enough people-- people who wanted to vote would be able to vote. we saw the terrible devastation there along the shoreline. but the results are in, at least as much as it takes for the associated press to make a call. >> ifill: i have read more amazing stories today about pregnant women who were on the way to the hospital who decided to vote. people who stood in the dark in lines in order to vote. in spite of what happened with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about pres
number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u
winner tonight. it was devastated, as you know, by that superstorm sandy and still awaiting word how many people in the storm zone could actually show up. but we are ready to project that the winner tonight in new jersey is president obama, george. >> so we still see the north is going to president obama, the south is going to governor romney. so far just about everything as expected right now. see the states filled in that have been called already but we'll keep our eye all night long on these big battlegrounds where the campaigns have invested so much time and energy and money. the big states that are going to tip the balance tonight, the vote continues to come in. i want to go to ohio. you see it on the map right now if we can zone in on the board. we see about 20% of the vote has now come in ohio. president obama has 59% of that so far. governor romney, 40% and jon karl, i want to go to you. so much of that lead is based on the early vote that was made before today. >> yeah, that's exactly right and, remember, i said at this time exactly four years ago, obama had a 33-point lead over
sandy, did that suppress turnout? >> we'll see what the final numbers say at the end of the day. we know both the states and municipalities took every step they could to make sure their voters' votes would count. the the state of new jersey even allowed you to e-mail your ballot in. all the states adapted. hopefully it didn't depress turnout put we haven't seen the final numbers. >> suarez: in 20 minutes there will be another round of closing. what will you and the campaign be looking at in particular? >> we're taking a look at the state of virginia and florida, which look like a couple of the closest states on the map. those states could go late into the night. there's no question there are still folks voting in line in south florida who have been there for a while. so i think that will take time to close out. new hampshire, voting continues for a little while more. and then i assume allize will turn to ohio and the midwest. >> suarez: ben lebolt from the obama campaign. thank you. >> ifill: we can tell you you the associated press projected a winner in three states, kentucky, vermont,
island, new york. that region battered from monster storm hurricane sandy. and polls opening in three more states. votersing under way in north carolina . west virginia and ohio. the state that could decide the winner tone. >> brian: word is confusion. people in staten island is lucky ones. people go how do i vote. and staten island and long island. >> gretchen: in new york any polling station they will take your vote. >> brian: it would be nice if they told the people of new york that. they don't have power. and doocy is playing center forward on this one in richmond, virginia and william is tracking reports of voters fraud on the west coast . we have chosen by popular support to go to bin. keck us off. >> here we go. it is game time now. you have 10s of thousands of volunteers and 40,000 poll workers who are dispatched to 4800 different polling locations in what many perceive as a must win state for the presidency . because of all of the lads and person attention that voters got here through district mail and e-mail . early voting set roars. final total was 1.8 million ballots were
like the hurricane sandy. but one thing that is important to point out is is we're going to see them in waves tonight. some of the things that they tell us early, we've got an early look that basically suggests that the economy, of course, is what drove people to the polls. it doesn't actually tell you who won. you can infer some of the things, the characteristics that are driving people to show up. >> brown: tell us a little bit more because we've got some of the early results. that first one backs up what we just heard from mark, right? it's still the economy. >> exactly. another thing that backs up what david and mark were just talking about is who is in more touch with people like you. 52% said that was president obama. chose obama. they were showing up at the polls. 44% chose governor romney in that sense. that could go to the advertising campaign that the president's team had really tried to say that mitt romney is not like you. i am more in touch with the middle tax. that goes to the tax increase issue which also showed up in the exit polls that six in 10 voters said taxes sho
wins or a close race in the an end. host: hurricane sandy -- does that help or hurt the president? people are complaining that the response has not been quick enough. guest: if held to be president a little bit. -- ti -- it helped the president a little bit. the cake is still bake. there are not a lot of undecided voters. i do not think it changed anything. host: rick is on the line from massachusetts on the independent line. good morning. caller: i think all poles are an absolute joke. it depends on -- polls are an absolute joke. the questions posed are going to be toward the end of achieving the goal of the pollster. it depends on how the question is asked. the answer can be spun in the way he wants. the university of boulder has actual numbers as opposed to opinion. i do not give my opinion to the pollsters because i do not know how they are going to skew them. host: can you give us your opinion? who you think is going to win? caller: i believe it is going to be mitt romney. all the jobs the president wants to create art taxpayer funded. he does that answer the question -- are
